house senior adviser. former george w. bush aide and a republican pollster. sara, i want to start with today. john kerry's best speech today may turn out to be historic speech. hillary clinton never made a speech like that as secretary of state ever. they let kerry do it and he delivered. now president obama did not have a formal speech but his remarks really sounded to me like he was pulling back from what kerry did. and i don't know that the american people may be confused. what's your take. >> i think the whole world is confused by what this president is saying and how he's saying. he's the reluctant president on this issue. and when you look at what's going on in syria, and the mess that it is, and mess in some regards by the president's own making. you know, let's remember this isn't the first time assad has used chemical weapons against his people. the president put a bright red line in the sand and then allowed assad to use chemical weapons again a second time. >> right. so, americans don't seem to want to do this, although i'm not sure they one what is it. richard, assess

office. just remember these two numbers. at this point in bush's administration, george w. bush administration we created only 177,000 private sector jobs. under the obama administration we created 3.1 million private-sector jobs. >> is that enough? >> no. but considering the headwinds we were facing this economy is growing much more rapidly than it was. >> we're being too impatient expecting more? >> don't think people are being too impatient the reality is there's unprecedented obstruction from republicans in congress who are been against every possible jobs measure. >> those talk points were very good the first three years of the obama administration. there's no question about it that the obama administration had unbelievable headwinds going into the first term. this is their second term. this is year number five. one could make the argument that the obama administration's policies have taken effect and unfortunately, and i say this with grave sadness is that this is a jobless -- very much so. here's why i'm sad. because there's double digit unemployment in the black communit

been found. and former president george w. bush recovering in a dallas hospital after undergoing heart surgery this morning. doctors discovering a blockage yesterday during bush's annual physical and put in a stent. in the procedure today mr. bush expected to be back home by thursday. and finally, here's more evidence, larry, that electric cars, they still aren't that popular. gm cutting the price of the chevy volt by a whopping 5,000 bucks. it will now list at under 35,000. volt shares felt 3.3% year on year, larry. >> give me natural gas anytime. can i just ask one more sning nidal hasan. this guy still hasn't been classified as a terrorist action, has he? >> sure. right. and that's an interesting part of the argument here. how does that affect the trial and obviously all eyes on two things we discussed. one, getting to question the victims. and two, remember, the ultimate penalty could be the death penalty. >> and he's going to be out there in an open courtroom with a lot of information going back and forth. >> a lot of scrutiny. >> that a lot of bad people might put to bad use. >>

tough with him for the several years but even george w. bush. what did he say, he can look into his eyes and i can do business with this guy? >> see his soul, yes. >> see his soul and it turns out that was a lot of bs. i think it's high time and about time. why do you think obama has done this? >> i think obama -- it's a little bit too late. i would have done more. i think obama at long last realizes the ambitious agenda he had for the past five or six years is really going nowhere there's disagreements with every issue, as the previous speaker said. putin wants to use as a punching bag to consolidate his position at home and without obama saying, we've had enough, i'm not going to meet you, and we'll go from there. on your comment earlier, larry, about the g-20, the problem, of course, is that the russians want to use the g-20 and want to restructure the entire international financial system to the disadvantage of the united states. >> yeah, but they can't. they can't. russia is a third-rate economic country. the only thing they have, you guys know this better than i do. all they h

ago after 9/11 where george bush to get the patriot act through. huge battles. i want to know is obama ready? does he have the stomach to go into a legislative battle such as he's going to have to have? he wants this committee to report in 60 days that's going to fix the foreign surveillance court, 60 days. he's also got obama care coming up in 60 days and also a continuing resolution coming bin 60 days. do you think he has the stomach for this? >> no. he hasn't shown the character or shown the leadership to be able to do this because look that. he did this press conference on a friday. on a friday afternoon during the middle of august when hoping some people weren't watching and i think the real reason why he did this press conference and why it was so much about the nsa and the spying, was because he saw his negatives in the polling going up over 50%. there's several national polls right now that have his disapproval ratings over 50% and he's got real problems with his base and he was talking to his base today. he was saying know the spying is not that bad. the worst thing in t

around today and said some of these things, he'd be called george bush. and that really got to them, i guess. >> all right, brian, with that question, the kennedy tax cuts, which lower tax rates across the board, certainly the first supply side tax cuts since the 1920s. >> no kidding, larry. and your clip right there really shows it. the liberals always say -- always says the jfk tax cuts were tax side. he said right in that clip that every dollar will result in investment. investment is the word he said. >> the krugmans of the world, the whole left, it's like they have erased the kennedy tax cuts from history. they have erased it. they will not acknowledge that they occurred, that they occurred sparked by a democrat who had to fight some of his own economists. and c, most importantly, they worked! >> and the thing is they're ready to make some weird deals with the devil. they tell us that the 1950s were the greatest era of prosperity when dwight eisenhower was president. that's wrong. growth was barely 2% with eisenhower. when kennedy came in, growth increased to 5% per year. >> 91% w
